    My Dreams Will Never Come True

    When I was a little child my mum would tell me that I write my songs down. I would sing and sing. But alas I had stage fright. I did though get a journal with the Eiffel tower on the cover. I wrote a song a day and for long enough to write 12 to 17 full songs and 4 to 6 half...

    I Try to Write Songs to Tear Your Heart Out

    Struggling Songwriter.

    I've written over 100 songs. My true dream is to connect with some producers who want to collaborate with me and make a song, and I'd hire singers. The bad part is I live in a small town and don't know any singers. I've tried reaching out to people on Craigslist, to no avail...

    My First Song

    I was five. I would pretend I had a cane and top hat like the WB frog and, tap dancing around, I'd sing, I'll never run away I'll never run away I'll never run away again. (repeat 20 times) Needless to say, I had never actually run away at that point. Poetic license and...

    Farther From My Heart

    Well most of my songs are intended to be closer to the genre of the fray (pop-rock and speak to a deeper level of emotion than most)...this next one I can envision as more of a country song (like one of Taylor Swift's more upbeat songs where she kind of sing/talks. Let me know...

    Nothing better than writing a song, getting it together with a band and playing it live, or better still hearing it on the radio (yes it has happened quite a few times) ... or best still seeing it on TV (a couple of times) .. like a childhood dream come true ..
